MISD Earns Ninth Consecutive ENERGY STAR Award
Energy STAR award

Mansfield ISD has once again earned one of the highest recognitions given by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The district received the 2022 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award.

The Partner of the Year Award is given to entities that perform at a superior level of energy management and prove organization-wide energy savings. The Sustained Excellence designation is given to organizations that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years.

This is the ninth year MISD has won the Partner of the Year and the seventh  year the district has held its Sustained Excellence distinction.

Since the start of the MISD Energy Management Program in 2012, MISD has achieved a cost avoidance of approximately $16.9 million in water, electricity and natural gas costs. The district’s conservation efforts have prevented carbon dioxide emissions by 65,456 metric tons, an amount equivalent to about 13,637 cars being driven for a full year.

"Our partnership with ENERGY STAR began over a decade ago; and since then, it’s paid off through increased efficiency, lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint," said Kelly Campbell, MISD energy conservation specialist. "We’ve been able to take a supportive staff and a quality program and multiply its effectiveness through that partnership. This recognition only further drives home the idea that we’re on the right track and continue to move in the right direction, being better stewards of the taxpayer dollars and the Earth.”

In addition to the award, MISD has earned more than 300 ENERGY STAR building certifications since 2006, more than any other school district in the state.

The MISD Energy Management Program also educates students and families about the importance of turning off lights, closing doors and turning off water to promote conservation and sustainability.
